In driving, an open corridor without vehicles formed on a 6-lane freeway / highway in between the passing / fast lane and the exterior / slow lane. Typically occurs just prior to an off-ramp, as the cars move & line up in the exterior lane to get onto the off-ramp, and the balance of drivers move into the passing lane to avoid the congestion.
At this point, a driver can choose to "charge the gauntlet" or "run the gauntlet", by moving into the middle lane and accelerating quickly. This makes it too dangerous for other drivers to enter the lane, keeping it free and clear.
Michael - Geez, I thought we were going to be stuck in traffic for an hour. Good thing I got that opportunity to run the gauntlet; I passed at least 30 cars!
Thomas - Michael, if you ever steal my car again, you will not live to see your 15th birthday.
Michael - Yes Dad.
